Kanchipuram is the ancient capital of the Pallava's and is also known as ‘The City of Thousand Temples’. Among the major Hindu temples in Kanchipuram, the most prominent is the Shiva temple.

Mahabalipuram is breathtakingly real with artistic impressions of beauty and harmony carved out of rocks. Mahabalipuram attracts tourists, due to its monumental splendour and sunny beaches. The visit is spiritually refreshing, with many artistic and period style temple displays representing various dynasties. Also see the famous Seven Pagodas and Krishna’s Butter Ball or balancing rock.

The phrase “Seven Pagodas” refers to a myth that has circulated all over the world for over eleven centuries. Mahabalipuram’s Shore Temple built in the 8th century CE under the reign of Narasimhavarman II, stands at the shore of the Bay of Bengal .Legend has it that six other temples once stood with it.
Krishna's Butter Ball is a huge, spherical monolith near the Ganesha Ratha. It rests precariously on a narrow rock base and seems to defy the rules of gravity. It is fifteen feet in diameter and could have probably been the raw material for the temples around. Myth has it that could be one of Krishna's pranks to leave the rock there or it is believed that several Pallava kings had also attempted to move the stone but neither the kings nor their elephants could shift the boulder even an inch.
